A weight of no substance sits squarely
Evenly weighted across my chest
A yoke on my shoulders
Whether I lay or stand

From my bed I can see a world
But I cannot participate
I am stranded here
By this mass

I have tried to shed the load
No medicine can cure me
Only you can rescue me
Maybe you can fight this

Wake me for I sleep this away
My other path needs your heat
Love to flow through my veins
Wake me from my sleep

Face the world through half open eyes
With you I have the strength
I cast the leaden jacket to the floor
I stand again

Signed sincerely
Thanks to you
